Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
You are experiencing a Uranus transit square to your Sun this year. With this aspect, any situations that you have felt to be limiting of your freedom will be hard to accept any longer. You might experiment with a new look or manner, or simply come off in an entirely new way as you feel your life speeding up. You are not dwelling on the past, and instead you are interested most in what the future might bring. In the process, you could resent others if they seem to be telling you what to do or think, and you are not especially receptive to good advice. There may be some confrontation with friends, a boss, or a partner that prompts a breaking of ties. Remember that you may be reacting to a bruised ego and you may not be in touch with your deeper feelings before making permanent decisions. It’s possible that you need to move on, but do take time to make decisions wisely. You might be tempted to throw out practical or traditional considerations in favor of more exciting or stimulating plans. Unexpected changes in plans or events are likely. Although they might be unsettling at times, they could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom. Your creativity is stimulated this year, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. You are likely to be more outspoken than usual, perhaps even rebellious.
There is much purpose and passion in the way you direct your energies this year. You might often come to others’ defence, supporting those you love and the ideas you believe in. There is a bit of a crusader in you this year.
Venus in harmonious aspect to Mars suggests good personal magnetism and for the most part, successful relationships. Competitions often work out in your favor. Venus with Uranus brings spontaneity into your personal relationships. Social meetings and events can fare especially well. You more readily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight.
Good energy is with you for thinking on your feet during this period of your life. You are quicker than usual at grasping concepts and ideas, and also quick to take the initiative. Plans that were only in the idea phase might now be put into action. You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas more powerfully.
Sales and communications tend to be favorable. You are more mentally alert, might often win arguments or enjoy success due to sharp decision-making, and you tend to readily defend your beliefs. You can especially enjoy learning and developing new mental interests, investigating, and researching.
This is a very strong year for new ideas and a wonderful period for starting a new and inspired project. Others are truly interested in what you have to say – for the most part, your communications are well received. You can effectively sell yourself and your ideas. Promotional efforts can be strong.
If your values and personal philosophy are at odds with others in your life this year, this will be less tolerable and more concerning. You might review some of your attachments in terms of whether they are contributing to your growth and development.
With Mars conjunct the Moon’s North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate a stirring of the passions and relative ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others. This aspect is one indication of getting engaged, married, the beginning of a significant new relationship, or the intensification of an existing romance.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well, although many of you will be doing a lot of re-connecting with people from your past.
You can be especially hard-working but sometimes too hard on yourself and possibly others as you attempt to get things right. This year, you may be challenged to let go of the past if it’s holding you back, but also to recognize when to stick to things and preserve those things that are important to your growth – a balance should be sought, as either extreme will not contribute to success. However, when possible, you may want to choose to work independently and at your own pace.
This can be a year of abrupt but necessary changes as you are learning a lot about yourself and what you truly desire, want, and need. There is much to learn from others, but some of your differences with people in your life could be more pronounced and frustrating. New ideas are abundant, and some can be quite marketable. Personal magnetism runs high, and relationships can more easily be attracted or enhanced this year.
2014 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2015 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
